Anyone see the "Dilbert" cartoon where "Dogbert" says-"I will no longer try to reason with the morons I encounter." "I will dismiss them by waving my paw and saying "Bah." Dilbert says-"Just because someone thinks differently than you, doesn't automatically make them a moron." Dogbert waves his paw and says-"Bah." It seems that a few of the posters here hold "Dogbert's" opinion. I see your m.o. If something early in a post rubs you the wrong way, you are under no obligation to keep reading. Stop and vent your anger immediately. If the writer responds with proof that you are wrong-i.e.-citing a sentence or paragraph you failed to read,you don't have to respond or apologize-just slink away, until you want to spew your venom on someone else. Your opinion is the only one that matters. The Republican right has perfected this technique, by objecting to books they haven't read and movies they haven't seen. When you cite literature or science, only quote the parts that support your opinion. The other parts,that may offer a conflicting viewpoint,or support what the other guy is saying are totally irrelevant. Someone's personal knowledge or experience has no value-because hey,I downloaded something off the net that says your wrong. And we all know that if it's on the internet, it's irrefutable fact,right? So, the next time something irritates you,save yourself the trouble of writing a lengthy post and simply say-"Bah."
